At the begging of the NFL season I had Tennessee Titans running back, Bishop Sankey as my No. 1 fantasy football sleepers option for the entire year. Like many, I figured that we wouldn’t truly know Sankey’s real value until around week 5.

Well, lo and behold — here we are. Coming into Sunday’s match-up against the Cleveland Browns, Sankey is averaging 5.1 YPC, though it is on limited attempts. The Browns defense that he gets to face has allowed 5.2 YPC to opposing teams, meaning that the rookie’s breakout week is likely now.

With his production in the passing game, Sankey should finish as an RB2 or top flex option.
